"Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything's possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time."

-- Marie Lu (via Goodreads)

How do you live in the moment? There are times when I just get lost deep in my thoughts and I find myself asking the same question. I think I am in a loop wherein my vision is blurred by things that I see necessary at the moment, but not in the long run. Could one call it already living the dream?

I am now twenty-four-years-old, and I'm not getting any younger. There's this feeling of distraught that I cannot shake off. Maybe, I've finally met the infamous, Quarter-life Crisis, and she's being such a b*tch right now. To be honest, I'm feeling like I'm going to run out of time. I still feel like I have so much to achieve, but I can't seem to do them all at once. I've made enough to-do lists and bucket lists, but it feels endless.

Kung sino 'man ang nagsabi ng walang forever, paki-sagot kung bakit ako may mga ganito (To whoever said forever doesn't exist, answer why I still have the following):
A pile of books to read
A set of movies & series to watch
A long list of places to visit & discover
A checklist of tasks to do
A lineup of activities to experience
A few languages to learn
A bunch of goals I still want to achieve
A number of must-haves to be financially stable
An overwhelming record of bills to settle

Being an adult is tough, kids, and I can't believe I'm talking like this. There would be a time that you would feel the same way. You will be juggling adulthood with whatever you want to do, and it shouldn't stop you from living your dreams. I'm fighting my way out of this hole, and so should you.

I won't let the negativity drown me. I will push and strive more so I can lessen my frustrations. I'll take one step at a time, a day at a time, to achieve as much as I can. There is always time and I can make up for it as long as I'll try. It's just a minor setback. We're already in the second half of 2015, and I believe I can still do more. There will be no room for excuses. I'm claiming that the next 5 months will be better.

I'll be living my life the way I'd want to.

Watch me.

Love lots, xx
